I've had Multiple Sclerosis since '88, and it's the standard Relapsing/ Remitting kind. About 4 years ago, though I started having burning in my feet, and I think it was around the time my lower legs and feet started to swell a lot.
Does anyone know what the cause of this burn is? I take Lyrica to make the pain manageable. Any info would be gladly welcomed.View Thread
Kim: Thank you. I guess I kept thinking it was somehow another "challenge", and not MS. I just keep having to have the dosage of the Lyrica increased because about every 6 months, the dosage I was taking just isn't enough, and the doc increases it.
I have learned that if I do more walking, even on my treadmill (boring!) that the swelling is less. I try to do everything I can to stay mobile, because I see hints of my right leg, usually my better one, getting worse. Ampyra definitely has helped though.View Thread
